Transcript of Greenschool?
place for happy children—with some light overhead, the school building should regard the children as a garden in the sun.”
—Frank Lloyd Wright We hope our solution to be a national model for a green school. We aspire to create a community based plan that represents the wants and needs of the local families by providing them with a interactive school within a safe environment for their children to learn not only general education but sustainable living as well. Placement of the school outside the neighborhood decentralizes the community, creating disconnects between the children and their surroundings. bussing decentralizes BOA wants to build on the Mileground which WVU currently owns. The New Woodburn Community School Initiative proposes instead to build on the current Woodburn site which the BOA already mostly owns. Introduction lay beneath the Mileground site costing We have focused on three case studies to help aid us in the process of our project. These case studies include; in Third Creek Elementary SchoolStatesville, NC, Clearview Elementary, in Hanover, PA and Manassas Park Elementary and Pre-School in Manassas Park, Virginia.

chris Haddox, LEED AP Chris is leading the development of an interdisciplinary initiative in sustainable design in the Division of Design & Merchandising at West Virginia University. His interest in sustainable design and green building was aroused and honed during his 9.5 years as Executive Director of Mon County Habitat for Humanity in Morgantown, West Virginia.
With an on-the-job education in sustainable design and a desire to lessen his impact on the environment, Haddox has become Green Advantage Certified and obtained his LEED Professional Accreditation. Both organizations promote sustainability, green building practices and principles.
He now hopes to inspire students to increase their knowledge of sustainability and green design. He stresses that there isn’t a right or a wrong way to use green design because it will vary from project to project; however, he wants to make sure students have a full pallet of tools enabling them to make informed decisions.
Being a resident of the Woodburn community, and having children in attendence to the school, chris shares a strong personal connection to the project and is a main contributor to the New Woodburn Community School Initiative. project Support
